Greenacres Farm is a 480-acre organic mixed farm in Shropshire. A range of enterprises fit together creating a business that is both viable and sustainable.
The main business involves organic cereals production, vegetables for an organic vegetable box scheme and a heifer cow rearing system in conjunction with a neighbouring organic dairy farm. The Lea family have farmed here for nearly 100 years, but over the last 10 years the farm has changed dramatically.
There are 2 full time and 5 part time staff, (all from the local area) members and the farm uses 5 casual staff in the summer months, mainly for weeding and harvesting work. Mark and Liz Lea are in charge of educational access visits, welcoming groups from all phases of education. Mark was educated locally at both Walford and North Shropshire College and Harper Adams University College. Mark is happy to deal with further enquiries via email:
